Prevention is the best cure


Yes, it's true, prevention is the best cure. It's not easy to prevent your baby from getting a cold because there are lots of different viruses that can trigger a cold, and they're easily passed between people.

There are a few things you can do though. You can wash your hands regularly and keep your little one out of contact with anyone showing signs of a cold.

Lisa also says that breastfeeding can help your baby ward off colds as it passes antibodies to your tot to help them fight off the infection.
